Integrated Supply Network (ISN) says that its 17th annual Tool Dealer Expo brought more energy, excitement and fun with huge deals, top-notch training and its infamous farewell event on Saturday night.
New this year, ISN added the PBE Pit Stop and Sporting Goods alley, featured a keynote speaker Eric Papp, a flash mob and celebrities spotted throughout the event, getting the 2,500 attendees pumped up for a weekend of exclusive deals and big prizes. Hosted at the Rosen Shingle Creek June 27-29 in Orlando, Florida, tool distributors were able to “ENERGIZE their business with education, PROFIT with spectacular savings and have a chance to WIN cars, ATV’s, cash and much more,” said ISN.
The Tool Dealer Expo opened on Thursday with product training sessions in the afternoon and this year the show floor opened early at 8am on Friday – allowing customers the opportunity to spend more time preparing and shopping to maximize their time during the event. Training continued Friday with a new keynote speaker, Eric Papp covering business topics on productivity in the sales process and key factors to successfully grow your business in today’s economy.
As soon as the expo began customers filled the room eager to learn about new and innovative products guaranteed to give them an advantage in the marketplace and allow them to stand apart from the competition. Participating vendors increased the excitement with cash-back offerings and “nuclear deals,” according to ISN. Attendees had chances to win more than $2 million in cash and prizes. More than 170 vendors partnered with ISN to host this event.
The Expo concluded with motivational and inspirational live entertainment by a dance company, bmx tricksters and a quick artist.
